While zeroing a new optic at the range recently, I fell down a rabbit hole of finding the “best” zero for a 22lr precision rifle. My determination: 35 yards, but how did I come to that conclusion, and is it actually right for you?
HI, I’M MATT.
I’m the founder of The Everyday Marksman.
I’ve always been an outdoors fanatic and avid shooting enthusiast. As a former military officer and master instructor, I want to bring a different perspective to the firearms and outdoors communities. It’s not just about high-speed shooting and tactics, but the sum of your ability.
I created The Everyday Marksman to teach tactical skills to everyday people seeking a more adventurous life.

I have many weaknesses and blindspots, too many to tackle in a single month or year. So let’s talk about one of those and what I’m doing about it- because this affects you.
